pinto beans and wild rice with harissa and jerk zucchini- pepperoni is not a vegetable

As the weather gets colder, it is important to take advantage of the last days to use the outdoor grill.  This recipe from Pepperoni is Not a Vegetable pairs grilled zucchini, lightly rubbed with your favorite jerk seasoning, with pinto beans and wild rice cooked with harissa spicy sauce.  The jerk seasoned zucchini and the harissa rice create a smoky and spicy combination perfect for the end of summer.  If you don’t have time to cook beans from their dried form or are not the biggest fan of wild rice, you can go ahead and use canned beans and your favorite grain of rice.
